Hi All,

How can we make a method thread-safe (but in terminology we are talking about classes as thread safe) by declaring it as static, i know about synchronized concept but is it possible to make thread safe with only static key word.

Declaring a method as static has no impact on its thread-safety (or thread-unsafety); that's determined by what the method does with data structures that represent shared state.
